Haiku Bob – Round 12: the odds

 

bright sunshine
the brilliance of a goal
on my daughter’s face

 

 

swirling leaves
every now and then a player
gets loose

 

 

abusing the umpire
my accent
well and truly back

 

 

not quite reaching
an unassailable lead
low winter sun

 

 

a long trail
of yellow leaves
we find a path to goal

 

 

hanging on
to a narrow lead
the light this time of year

 

 

the odds
of the full-forward missing
three easy shots
